The day after I received this cookbook, I used the recipes to make cole slaw and the lemon pound cake. I have a love-hate relationship with cole slaw. Usually it is so creamy you can't appreciate the flavor of the veggies in it. David's recipe was perfect for me, it contains red onions and red cabbage, which spice it up, and the apple cider vinegar mixed with mayo and just the right amount of sugar and celery seed enhanced the mix of veggies, rather than covering it up. As for the lemon pound cake... OH, MY, GOSH! If you love lemon, if you love a rich, buttery pound cake, you have to try this recipe! My husband said, just from the pound cake recipe, the price of the book is justified. This book is filled with David Venable's wonderful, friendly enthusiasm for food and family, and the lavish color photographs provide a lot of inspiration to try out the recipes.

I absolutely love this cookbook. It's 'down-home' style cooking is exactly what we all crave now and again. I have made both the cookies and brownie recipes and they are awesome. I have watched David on QVC and he has blossomed since taking over the cooking segment. David is about as real as they come. He is always the gentleman and his recipes reflect how he grew up. I think every good 'cook' needs this cookbook in their library....GET IT FOR THE BROWNIES AND COOKIE recipes. It's so worth it!!

I collect cookbooks and have around 100, some are very gourmet, the recipes from those cookbooks are used only occasionally and a lot of the times the ingredients are hard to find in my small town. Now on to the 'In the Kitchen with David' cookbook! LOVE it! Very easy (but delicious) recipes and easy to find ingredients. Love the recipe for his mac and cheese! I've also tried a couple other recipes which were delicious! I really think this will be one of my 'go to' cookbooks for everyday use. It's a beautiful book with lots of photographs which I appreciate. One of my pet peeves are cookbooks with little to no pictures. Also, if you are a fan of David, you'll appreciate his stories in this book. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who likes to cook comfort foods.

Format: Hardcover
A lot of cookbooks these days feature celebrities that also are chefs. This is not one of those kind of books. Host of "In The Kitchen With David" on QVC, David Venable is not a chef. He is a guy who likes to eat and knows a thing or two about cooking. The result is this 254 page cookbook with the same title of as his TV show. It features 150 recipes to make food and company fun. It is worth noting up front that pictures of finished dishes are few and far between, the text is small and light in shading which can make it difficult to read, and no nutritional information is included.

After a brief forward and introduction it is on to the recipes. First up is "Appetizers: Party Starters" beginning on page 2. There is a brief introduction to the section followed by 15 recipes. This is where you go for "White Bean and Sun-Dried Tomato Dip" (page 5), "Chicken Nachos" (page 9), or "Crispy Potato Skins" (page 15) and many others. Pictures of finished dishes are few and far between, text is small and light in shading, and no nutritional information is included. Directions, ingredient lists, and servings are included as are small highlighted tip style boxes using the logo "Dishin' With David" containing various information. The information in these boxes is not throwaway information, but actual quality information well worth your time to read.

"Biscuits, Muffins and Quick Breads: Our Daily Bread" comes next on pages 26-43. "Southern Buttermilk Biscuits" (pages 28-29), "Blueberry Muffins with Streusel Topping" (pages 34-35) and "Sour Cream Coffee Cake" (Page 38) are here. A number of the recipes in this chapter would easily fir in the next chapter devoted to breakfast and brunch.

"Breakfast and Brunch: Rise and Shine!" features 13 recipes that should hit the spot.

I enjoy watching David on QVC and knew I wanted his book as soon as he mentioned it. He is not a trained chef, but rather a home cook and it book is meant for the home cook. I have made the meatloaf with garlic mashed topping and my hubby and I loved it. I also made his honey/mustard glazed pork tenderloins. They were so delicious too. Very easy to following instructions and the tone of the book is just as he is. I spent the days after hurricane Sandy reading it by flashlight as it brought me comfort as the food does too.

Hi, we have watched David on the QVC network for many years and he is very entertaining. His 1st book reflects his great personality and his love for food. All of his receipes are simple and straight forward. We have only tried a few, but they all seem to be delicious and genuine. Thank you.

I like to see what I am making.
